Former Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris and Tory talk show host Mark Levin have both called on Republican-controlled state legislatures to take over the ballot counting process in tightly contested states .
Talk with Newsmax TVOn Wednesday’s “Stinchfield” Morris said: “Members of Republican-controlled legislatures in four states must step up and take charge of the process of counting their governors, who happen to be Democrats, and help President Donald Trump to win re-election. . “
“We need to shift the fight from the executive power of states to the legislative power of states. In each of these four key states – North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin – there are Democratic governors, but both houses of the legislature are Republican. These guys have to wake up, ”Morris said.
He continued, “And if you live in these states, you have to call your state representative and state senator and tell them, go ahead. Meet at the State Capitol, demand that the legislature be convened, and take charge of the counting process. “
In fact, as Morris pointed out in the interview, Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution specifically grants state legislatures a prominent role in the electoral college process.
“Each state appoints, in such manner as its legislature may order, a number of electors equal to the total number of senators and representatives to which the state may be entitled in Congress: but no senator or representative , or any person holding an Office of Trust or Profit in the United States, will be nominated as a voter. “
“The US Constitution does not say that states will decide the procedure for electoral votes,” Morris commented. “They say the legislature should decide. Not the governors, the legislature. “
“And what they should do is step in and say that the evidence of missing votes, suddenly discovered votes, unexplained delays, not granting access to election observers shows the corruption of this process, and we, the state legislature, are taking over. We will create a joint committee to lead this process, and then we, the legislator, will do what our Constitution directs us to do: determine who won the election and get the electoral votes of our states. That’s what they should be doing.
Conservative talk show host Mark Levin echoed Morris’ suggestion that state legislatures act by saying, “You have the final say on the choice of voters, not an electoral council, an electoral secretary. State, a governor or even a court.
“Prepare to do your constitutional duty,” he concluded.
